I have yet to see anyone dive as often, or successfully as Dustin Brown.

This would seem a lot more legitimate if we weren't playing the Kings right now, ha ha ha.

He dives, but not nearly as much as HF makes him out to.

True, but anyone can see that he more than gives the Canucks a run for their money

brown is "good" at diving cuz it's not blatantly obvious most of the time and kings fans can pass it off as him being a "bad skater"

These are hilarious examples of so called dives. The first one the stick is between his legs. If thats a dive then every time that happens are those players diving as well?

The second one look at their legs. Their legs make contact with Brown in mid stride as they are chasing a puck.

Pominville went for a swim against the Leafs on Monday. That was hilarious.

Can you try justifying everything in here as well?

Dude I wouldn't normally say this but as a Canucks fan it is humorous that you harp on Brown for diving so incessantly. Don't you have the video on youtube where it's game 6 and the Kings logo turns into the NHL logo?

Why try justifying something when no matter what is said you will still say otherwise.

And it still doesnt change the fact that in both of those videos both were still legit calls regardless of whether you think he dove or not. Anytime a player gets tripped up with a stick between the legs its called. Same for the interference call against Z.

I'll admit I'm a Canucks fan but I don't think Vancouver, as a team, dives much at all. Most of their reputation stems from the 2011 playoffs and a lot of players have cleaned up their act in that regard since then.

Kesler however does not fit in that category. He may not have played a game yet this season but he's still one of, if not, the worst diver in the league. It's pathetic.

Brown has had a couple dives this game. Drawn two penalties for his work.

Claiming someone can't talk about diving because their team dives

But your team dives... so you can't claim we can't claim your team dives because your team dives. In fact all teams dive! So I guess no one can claim not being allowed to claim someone a diver then.

Yes quit *****ing about it unless a dive actually happens in a game that is underway

It was deserved. He flopped pretty easily on that one.

Kesler has dove 3 times in 8 years. You said Brown had a couple of dives just in this game and yet Kesler is the worst diver in the league? Doesn't really make much sense.

I agree. Kesler is one of the worst in the league, but as a team the Nucks aren't too bad
